To access TxDOTCONNECT, external partners need a TxDOT network ID and password. If you do not have a TxDOT network ID and password, please contact your sponsoring district/division so that they can request one for you.

External users must also complete and sign Form 1828b (Security Form), available on the Contractors Forms page in

The external user may use the TxDOT network ID and password to submit a TxDOTNow ticket to request the appropriate external user access to TxDOTCONNECT.
